Nick Knowles was spotted celebrating his 60th birthday…while on a construction site, in true DIY SOS style.

The presenter, who has hosted the series since 1999 and is set to return with a new series this year, was seen in Yorkshire working on the site on Wednesday.

He wore a high-visibility jacket and hard hat, while touring the location with fellow stars including Gabe Blackman.

The presenter, who also appeared in The National Lottery: Who Dares Wins and Real Rescues, has transformed hundreds of homes from viewers with his construction team.

DIY SOS originally sought to help viewers DIY projects that went wrong and never been completed, but a separate Big Build has seen the team enlist the help of local dealers, suppliers, and the larger community to help deserving families.

Nick also took to Twitter to thank actress Vicki Michelle for her good wishes, writing, “Ahh thank you – that’s nice of you – I thought I wore that jacket for a bet but what a lovely day it was,” posting: Knowles. Love all his shows and he’s a great guy. It was a great memory at the Duke of Essex polo match, so much fun. I wish you a wonderful day.

He also shared a photo on Instagram to celebrate with DIY SOS providers, including Billy Byrne and Julian Berryman.

Nick smiled behind a chocolate cake that featured Minnie Nick in a high-top sweater as decoration.

While Nick seemed busy working hard on the site, he recently revealed that DIY SOS has a highly uncertain future after a social media user asked him to help someone in need.

When a fan reached out to Nick on social media to highlight someone she felt deserved the Big Build treatment, he hinted that the future of DIY SOS could be in trouble itself.

Discussion of Angel Lin, 21, who was paralyzed After being kidnapped and falling from a truck, one fan tweeted: “MrNickKnowles Can’t DIY SOS help this worthy family?”

Nick replied: “Unfortunately, we were only commissioned by BBCOne to build one this year for children in need and have not yet commissioned any designs for next year.

“But we know there is a great need and we can help more people and communities so we hope to have news soon.”

Fans soon poured in the comments to plead the BBC to commission more of the beloved show, with one writing: ‘So sad to hear about Nick. Fantastic program and exceptional service to communities across the country. hopefull Tweet embed More commission soon!!

Another commented: ‘🤞🤞 For the next year, the work of the show and the whole team to help people through difficult times is inspiring,’ while another wrote: ‘I worked 3 days at Little Miracles and it would be a farce if they got rid of DIY SOS. It was great to be a part of the show.

DIY SOS is available to watch on BBCiPlayer.
